    Details
    Product feature
    1. Frame
      6061 T6 aluminium frame—lightweight, dynamic and sturdy. The simple side-folding system using the lever means it takes up little space at home, at the office, in the boot of a car or in a camper... you'll forget your bike is even there. There is a mechanism to quickly lock the frame and stem so that you can keep the bike folded and transport it easily.
    2. Fork
      Hi-ten steel fork for greater durability.
    3. Drivetrain
      Thanks to the Shimano 7-speed derailleur, the TILT 500 can easily cope with any gradient and lets you adapt your effort throughout your ride (pushing off at traffic lights or accelerating in a straight line, for example) The Shimano Revo-Shift shifter is ergonomic and precise. Metres of development: 2.96 m / 5.90 m.
    4. Brakes
      Steel V-brake and callipers guarantee effective and progressive braking.
    5. Handlebar / stem / steering
      Steel low-rise bars with a rise of 60mm to adjust your position on the bike to suit your body and make the bike easier to handle. Handlebar width: 560 mm.Fixed aluminium stem with quick-release lock for greater stiffness compared to a height-adjustable stem. Distance from saddle to handlebar: 540 mm.Bottom bracket to saddle distance: 480 mm to 780 mm
    6. Saddle / Seat post
      Comfortable, seamless foam saddle to stop water getting in. Theft-proof seat post that doesn't twist. 31.6 mm diameter.
    7. Wheels
      20", single rim, black anodised wall.
    8. Tyres
      20 x 1.75 skinwall city tyres with puncture-proof coating. We have made these tyres lighter to get better performance while retaining their grip.
    9. Crankset
      The fold-up pedals reduce bulk when the bike is folded. Once the pedals are folded up and the stem folded down, the bike can be stored against a wall and takes up very little space (26 cm wide). Cranks: 170 mm.
    10. Accessories / equipment
      Mudguard with stays, double chainguard to stop the chain jumping and protect from dirt. Front and rear battery-powered lights. Rear light screwed on to avoid the risk of theft. The front of the bike can be fitted with a built-in LED available from our after-sales service. This bike is compatible with the TILT transport cover and the B'TWIN pannier rack for foldable bikes.
    11. Weight
      Weight: 12,9 kg

    • bTWIN SWOP

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Did a swop on a Bifold bike on a recall for a fault replaced with Btwin 500 did not think bike would be as good as Bfold as I liked this bike just had a service carried out on it and it was running very smoothly ,although frame lighter and slightly more compact on Btwin 500 there was an extra gear 7 instead of 6 ,gear change felt smoother and was quite rapid at picking up speed it also feels quite robust in use and easy to fold up and open out where the old Bfold could be quite stiff and heavy this seems a more fluid lighter all round machine with similiar or superior performance.
    • Better than a Bfold 7 in some ways but not in all.

      Obviously a lot lighter than the Bfold 7. Better front latch but inferior main hinge latch in my opinion. I know much of it is metal but the lever itself is abs plastic. While it isn't a major load bearing component and while abs is super strong too, it seems strength is unnecessarily compromised and not readily replaceable like, say, abs pedals are. They rarely if ever break of course so I may be getting a bit picky. But in the wake of the Bfold 7 recall why would they introduce plastic?
      Rear lamp can't be seen passed the mudguard and so it is surely a bit pointless.
      Main issue for me is that it feels cramped compared to the Bfold but that may actually suit some people. While the Bfold did indeed fold, it was somewhat under-engineered as a proper commuter folder. The tilt is much more designed for its true purpose so it gets plus points there. Frame welds seem much more precise too. It seems good for the money- as is usually the case for Decathlon. Also as is the case, excellent service and professionalism from the staff at Warrington. Literally from the moment I entered to the moment I left. 5 stars for them.
    • Still waiting on parts

      Just purchased yesterday whilst in store after service or bike check I noticed the fastening clip missing I then noticed in the morning the rear reflector is missing .
      I raised the fastening clip issue with the staff who offered to order at a 3 week wait for part as it comes from France .
      I yet to advise him that there is no rear reflector .
      In fairness to the staff they did offer a refund and to order a new bike at a 10 day delivery time.

      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Bought in summer 2017 (the 2017 version is slightly different) in the "Don't run me down yellow" (makes the bike a nice talking point).

      It rides nice, I have lots of enjoyment riding it for fun, to work and for shopping. Brakes squeal in dry weather even now, but I consider that a feature.

      It is easy to fold and unfold. Very hard to get to stand upright when folded (the trick is to use the pedals and kick stand, or lean against something) but I see the new model has some kind of triangle stand.


      The clip that holds the bike together when folded is hard to get correctly positioned and thus ends up releasing when wheeling the folded bike - use a bungee to hold together.


      Despite problems I highly recommed getting the pannier rack (you have to get the specific one for the Tilt bikes).

      [Pannier problems:
      1. you need to be careful what you put in the right-hand pannier bag as it can bang against the gears (I had a D-lock in mine and have now slightly bent mine) - I notice this year's version seems to have a guard.
      2. If you have the left-hand pannier bag on you can't fold the bike.
      3. means the rear-light gets covered.]
